Dear Mr Julian

We write in reply to your email of 28 July 2014 in which you requested
information about Health Service Journal Awards Attendances and
Expenditure in the 2013/2014 financial year.

We place great emphasis on maintaining high levels of staff morale within
EMAS and in our experience, staff get a great deal of satisfaction from
knowing that their efforts have been recognised by being nominated for an
award. If they are subsequently shortlisted, attend the ceremony or indeed
win an award, these feeling are further enhanced. Furthermore, the awards
process helps EMAS to promote the great work staff do and contributes
towards the public鈥檚 perceptions of the service.

We can confirm that EMAS spent 拢810 in the 2013/2014 financial year on
attending Health Service Journal Awards ceremonies.聽 This covered two
staff members attending the actual Health Service Journal Awards and one
person attending the Health Service Journal Efficiency Awards (cost was
拢270 per person x 3).

Yours Sincerely

Matthew Williams
